It looks as if President Trump’s strategy is starting to work. China seems to be starting to work with the U.S. to push North Korea to stop its nuclear and ballistic missile program. Twice in two days, they slammed North Korea for its ballistic missile program. Of course, words and UNSC resolutions can be cheap we need to see the follow-up but it’s a good start.
On Saturday the UN Security Council (UNSC) unanimously voted to sanction North Korea in retaliation for their recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.The resolution written by the U.S. bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood. It also bans countries from increasing the number of North Korean laborers in their homelands and stops new joint ventures with North Korea and any new investments in existing ones
Both Russia and China which could have vetoed the resolution voted in favor of the sanctions.
